Does eThekwini mean ""place of the lagoon"" or ""place of the single testicle""? How are the names of dogs used to accuse a neighbour of witchcraft? What is the origin of Jamludi? Is the Zulu isibongo the same as a surname? What influence do scholars have in the process of naming? ""Zulu Names"" explores the meanings of and metaphors behind more than 1000 Zulu names grouped into different categories: from personal names and nicknames to clan names and praises; from place, homestead and regimental names to school and shop names; and from domestic animal and bird names to the names of the Zulu lunar months. For the more serious scholar, ""Zulu Names"" also contains research and onomastic material. This is a guide for anyone interested in Zulu language or culture, or in naming practices generally.
